Client: Canadian Pacific Railway Company

Description: This hotel was among three CPR facilities in the Rocky Mountains. Locomotives were not powerful enough to haul dining cars to high altitudes. Hotels and dining stations had to be provided at regular intervals. Picturesque sites were chosen to attract visitors for short-term sojourns as well as to please transient travellers. Edward Maxwell designed the Sicamous Hotel (39) and remodelled the Glacier House (35). In 1897, he prepared drawings for an addition to Fraser Canyon House, situated at North Bend, BC. A modest balloon-frame and clapboarded structure, the house included a large dining room at the ground level and 16 guest rooms on the first and attic floors.
